    hi guys

    anyone else noticed the last few days there likes are very low... i was hitting 600-900 per picture last week now im hitting just 400-500 tops? 12k account.

    I noticed during unfollow period that likes did drop a tiny bit . (or maybe instagram wide they did )
    I started following and they are back to normal

    Did you post regularly or did you post often after eachother, I am experimenting a bit and I experienced a drop whenever I post instead of 4 hours in between I now post 1 hour. That made the likes drop by 30%!
    After that I started posting as usual and I experienced a tiny bit less, but should be ok.

    This argument is the definition of Albert Einsteins quote "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result".

    NO. The system is not rigged against YOU, it's rigged against the way you try to abuse Instagrams core values and alghorithms.

    Stop botting your acocunt, use relevant hashtags (your average likes x100 posts) and post quality content. I can promise you you will see a big difference after a week.

    And if I say to you that I do not use bot..the hashtag are the same when I used to get 2,5k likes and the content is still the same good one

    Plus it s full of people that have witness to this change..some of my friends also do not see the posts in chronological order anymore but at the top there are the ones with more likes

    I've noticed my followers take a huge decline since the update. No idea how or why, nothing changed on my end.
